Re: Sea Kayaking on Lake Zurich

Maybe a more important distinction is that rowers are typically highly trained serious athletes who can only talk about 500m times while kayaking seems to be more for fun
I was a rower for years and its a very social sport which has club members and activities at all different levels. Obviously it would be hard to get into some of the more exclusive clubs in Zurich like Grasshoppers but if you were really interested and wanted to enjoy a new sport then Im sure there are clubs there for you. And btw...the heads of the river in the winter were anything up to 15km long and over the summer Olympic distance is 2,000mtrs not 500 : )
